RB Shakur Chisolm (6-2 188) of Barnwell broke his foot in the first game of last season but is fully healthy this season and showing it. He had over 600 rushing yards in his first four games including a 22 carry, 296 yard effort against Bamberg-Ehrhardt.
“That was one of the most impressive performances I’ve seen from a running back,” Barnwell coach Eddie Moore said. “If he’s not one of the top ten running backs in the country next year, I’d like to see them.”
Moore said Chisolm has all the intangibles to be a great back. “He has great vision and balance and a good change of direction. He’s fast enough. His lower body strength is outstanding. He doesn’t tip-toe thru the holes.”
Chisolm, who also plays free safety, came on strong as a freshman and drew a verbal offer from Auburn back then. USC, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Purdue, Missouri, Virginia and East Carolina are some of the schools now expressing interest. Chisolm was at the USC-Georgia game and has been to USC and Clemson in the past.
Moore said Chisolm could play running back, free safety or receiver in college.
